Pretty good one finger of head for an oaked beer. The body is a dark brown color.
The aroma is mild oak with a dose of milled barley.
The taste has a mild oak all around, which rounds out the Arrogant Bastard. The bold malt and hop profile is still there, just mellowed out a bit. It's good.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
A great beer and too easy to drink.

Poured this from the bottle into a mug.

Looked and smelled good, dark.

First taste was bitterness, and water. I hate when I can pick up on the water in a beer. Besides that it did have a decent body, and I appreciate dark beers, but I have just never been able to appreciate any of the Arrogant Bastard brews.

Mouthfeel was pretty carbonated and bitter. If you like bitter, you will like this one, but not the most bitter I've had.

Overall, I finished it. That's about it.
